It is a dance of sorts. SO choregraphed is probably the only word you could use. However it is not a perfect word because you pften do not know who you will be wrestling till you walk into the gym let alone have time to design a match etc. Pretty much how it works is the booker will tell typically the heel how the match will end. (who wins) The heel will call the match (this is what they are doing when it they are whispering in each others ear) The heel will let the face have his comeback and either win or the heel will take it back and squash him. So there is really no preset dance per se. Most wrestlers have what is called a move set (a series of move they use every time) the rest is filled wiht chain wreslting and posturing. Main events are typically arranged by men called agents (old timers who know how to put it all together) But even they are not done so step by step as a dance routine is.

Rampage may just have found his niche.

Fair enough.
